    2012 Yamaha FZ1S For Sale

    I bought my FZ1 brand new 5 years ago but the time has come to try something else. These bikes are brilliant sports tourers with more power than you will ever need.
    44,545km
    IXIL Exhaust with removable baffles (badge removed so it is less obvious)
    Power Commander 5
    Nitron adjustable rear shock and spring. Front springs replaced to match
    New chain and sprockets at the last service
    Radguard for the radiator
    T-Rex frame sliders
    Headlight protectors
    Adjustable levers
    Givi monokey panniers (2 x 21litre) and Shad top box (45 litre). Storage canisters inboard of the panniers. That is plenty of space for decent road trips.
    Yamaha comfort gel seat (plus original if you want it)
    LED Indicators and tail light
    12v and USB outlet on bars
    RAM ball mount on bar clamp
    A couple of different windscreens
    Oxford heated grips
    Barkbusters (used in winter but not fitted at the moment)
    Original books, documentation and receipts

    The Michelin PR4 tyres are a bit square from highway riding but are legal.

    Rego due Nov 12, will renew if req’d or save money and I’ll just organise a pink-slip.
    Factory exhaust is in a box if you want it.

    $7500obo with 12 months rego. Located at Killara on Sydney's upper north shore.

    If you dig a hole and it is in the wrong place, digging it deeper isn't going to help.

    Police warn that blow-up dolls are not recognised floatation devices.

    What sort of range do you get when touring? Have been thinking of offloading my Gen 1 FZ1 for something different but wondering how much difference the smaller tank really makes.

      On the open road with the top case and panniers I can get over 300km on a tank. IIRC the most I ever did was 312km and there was still almost a litre in the tank. I usually look for fuel around 250km.

      Carving up mountain twisties obviously uses a bit more fuel. By the time they got to these late build FZ1s, Yamaha finally worked out the fuel mapping so they don't surge like the early Gen 2s.

        Very nice. I don’t really want another bike, but am very tempted by this. You’re just up the road too..

          Let me know if you're interested. I'm in Adelaide for the next week or so, mostly home for a week and a half then going to Perth for 5 weeks.
